Data protection, high availability, and disaster recovery are all topics that can give sleepless nights to many IT professionals. Neverfail hopes to alleviate some of that stress with Neverfail ClusterProtector, a new product announced at Tech Ed IT Professionals 2008 that serves as an addition to the Neverfail Continuous Availability Suite. Neverfail ClusterProtector is currently in beta, but is scheduled for release in July 2008.
According to a statement from the vendor, the product will offer "continuous data replication for Microsoft Windows Failover Clustering" and provide real-time replication of application data to remote disaster recovery locations. Neverfail ClusterProtector will be available for Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, and Microsoft SQL Server, and will also offer support for Microsoft Cluster Server, Exchange, and SQL Server for customers who haven't upgraded to Windows Server 2008 yet.
In a statement announcing Neverfail ClusterProtector, Jason Hermitage, director of Windows server marketing at Microsoft, touted the product's failover clustering features. "Neverfail ClusterProtector is an ideal complement to Microsoft Windows Server 2008 failover clustering. This powerful combination extends the capabilities of multi-site clustering to deliver continuous availability through any type of disaster."
In related news, Neverfail announced that Neverfail Version 5.4 now provides support for Windows Server 2008, and is currently being tested with Microsoft's Hyper-V hypervisor-based virtualization technology.
